Caring for the Deceased

Harley Funeral Services is committed to caring for the remains of your loved one in a dignified and respectful manner.

Clothing for the deceased

Many families prefer their loved one to wear their own clothes, uniform or religious habit (distinctive set of religious clothing worn by members of a religious order) and, on occasion, items of jewellery or devotional items (e.g Rosary Beads). Depending on the type of committal, we will advise on what is suitable.


Embalming allows the deceased to be presented with natural colouring and the absence of any changes which would otherwise naturally follow soon after death or if a death occurred under tragic circumstances.

All of the embalmers that we work with are professionally trained and certified.
